An Ill Couple

Two of Lynn’s good friends, a married couple, were down with high fever at about the same time. They were so seriously down that they had to get Lynn to escort them to consult a Chinese physician. This incident kind of shook me to my senses with regards to the illusion that two people living together will definitely be able to take good care of each other. At the end of the day, we are still living out our own personal karma, even if it is closely entwined collectively with those we love, and hate.

At the end of the day, our salvation is "self-vation", a matter of self-reliance- even if it means using our efforts to get others to help. Two spiritually unwell people can only take care of each other as well as they are well- that is why we go to the Enlightened beings and their teachings as the highest refuge, as they are the spiritually perfect with teachings of spiritual perfection.
